Xcel Energy Submits Application to Change Terms of Boulder Programs

Xcel Energy submitted the attached application on 2/17/12 which proposes  adjustments to terms and conditions of various programs offered to Boulder customers including:

  • Solar Rewards
  • Solar Gardens
  • Demand Side Management Programs
  • Proposed Windsource Long Term Contracts

Presumably any changes made by Xcel Energy will have to go through a Public Utilities Commission process before it moves forward.

The Application also mentions a section of Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) s. 40-3-106(1) (a). That section is reproduced below and the full CRS S. 40-3-106 (Downloaded 2012-02-16) is attached.

Clean Energy Action seeks to make this application available to the public and cannot answer the legality of the proposal.

40-3-106. Advantages prohibited – graduated schedules – consideration of household income and other factors – definitions.
